>working past 11pm
Why would anyone agree to these working conditions?
VFX artist here. in any creative job you work the hours needed. if you don't get to a point of completion today. then you have to do it tomorrow. if not then the next day. it builds and builds. as with any deadline orientated work. and if you miss your deadline. then you don't get paid. client work is truly hell
This, so much. I live and work in Japan, and that's basically how it goes. Instead of actually getting work done or being efficient with your time, the key is to do things as slowly as you can to avoid getting more work. You just "look busy" all day and everyone is happy.
Theres Henry. Aww look how cute his name looks next to all the runes.
You keep that white man dream alive brother
Even better than the hair colors
Where are my horses?
And why does this OVA look so shit?
Even big cities stop all trains at night. There are night bus routes, but they're usually ever few hours and don't cover much ground.
Being stuck somewhere in a big city late at night is basically shit. You either have a DD or you call a cab.
in most bigger cities in Germany they run all night on weekends and are replaced by busses in the week, which go like half as often. Depending on how far out you live, you should get there at night.
You mean we're never going to get Andes Chucky Jii-san's horse animation?
This is a huge load of bullshit. Finding a job where you earn money for something you enjoy doing is like winning the lottery. Most of the time you can't work like you want to because of external demands and end up burning down.
What Yano says about not being super serious about your job and stop giving fucks after a certain threshold is the best approach if you don't want to be miserable
If you don't own a car and rent is cheap, then the cost of living is low.
Average cost of living is a deceptive stat. Some cities in the US can have a low average cost of living, but the average is also the minimum, because there's no economy for the low-income. Other places can have an above-average cost of living, but also have a thriving economy for the low-income, so the low-income minority can live comfortably well below the average living cost. Middle-class real estate prices and the cost of owning and operating a motor vehicle constitute the majority of the average cost of living in most places.
It comes down to the Tokyo area having a good enough public transit system for a low-income worker to hold a job without needing a car (something that's simply not possible in most of metropolitan NA), and affordable closet-sized apartments for people that can't afford anything better.
I know in my city, the latter is completely nonexistent. The bare minimum rent is more than Aoi makes in a year and that will get you a moldy basement in a rundown townhouse 10 minutes off the transit line and about an hour out from the city's downtown.
It depends on where you're looking. A highrise apartment will be expensive anywhere in the world, but you can find the kind of communal housing that they show off in the show for fairly low prices as long as you're willing to give up amenities.
I'm not saying you won't find places that are shitty and crazy expenses, but affordable real estate does exist if you look hard enough.
Personally, I'm infatuated with the sheer amount of money I could save by living in a city that isn't blanketed under 2feet of snow 8 months out of the year. Being able to bike to the grocery store or onto the transit line itself is a huge money-saver.
>400+ votes for Diesel out of nowhere
Dieselfags just had to ruin the poll
Incorrect. She disliked the idea of making wheels and only wheels for the next several years, since it wouldn't help with her dream of making an anime with her friends.
She's perfectly fine with making wheels in her new company, as she gets to make other things, and even animate too. Also she had a really hard time quitting her other job even though it was basically repetitive cubicle tier work.
Please don't say bad things about my waifu.
That's called moving the goalposts.
The saying isn't "Choose a job you don't love and learn to love it."
The love for the job comes before having the job.
>there's a lot of things about a job you can find joy in
You can find joy in literally anything. It's not a matter of possibility, but probability. The probability of finding something you like in a job that outweighs the things you hate in a job is low.
And if you do that's probably just Stockholm's kicking in.
The better statement in this case would really be something like:
"Pick a job that makes enough money and doesn't make you want to kill yourself while you're working it so you have enough free time to enjoy your hobbies."
Doing what you love can make you money, keyword being can. Even then, you have to have the drive, guts, and luck to be the best at what you do in 90% of cases.
Bully all of them anon, bully them all
Every thread until I get tired of it
>Why would anyone agree to these working conditions?
The Japanese are going to destroy themselves.
I mean, this is a show about a bunch of cute girls wasting their prime reproductive years in a stressful and low-pay job, making cartoons for manchildren.
Well, Diesel, Mii-chan and Zuka(If she had a VA job) don't seem to have too bad of a schedule. Aside from the cat thing and the final episode push, Ema doesn't really seem to be strapped for time as well. In fact, she seems to have enough time to babysit Ai at work.
>Kamimura's claims that new animators have been forced to leave the industry due to such disproportionate pay. She believes that in order to preserve the quality of anime, and to keep new animators coming in, a fixed salary of at least 100,000 yen (about US $839.26) a month is necessary.
What the fuck? That's what a part-timer should get, not a full time worker who will probably be doing overtime. Buy the BDs and feed Ema.
I used to make about twice that flipping burgers at a fast food joint when I was fresh out of highschool.
It's hard to believe that it's possible to actually live on an income like that.
You cannot contain it anon.
If someone was willing to give me a job, I'd work for as long as I legally could without getting the company in trouble for overworking me or something.
Maybe I should move to Japan.
>american animator working in japan
>credits include Tokyo Ghoul, Naruto Shippuden, and more,
>If only Tarou-san was here.
She seems so laidback, like she would come home from animating flying CG boars and then shitpost all night on /a/. Can there be a more perfect waifu?
I only considered characters with at least one syllable formed in the series.
Shirobako has made me realize that a girl doesn't need a good design or look special to be the best, even a bland-looking girl becomes best with the right personality.
I'm no longer an ass man, or tits man, now I'm a personality guy.
Pretty late to respond, but asians tend to overemphasize hours. You could get a quality job done in a short amount of time, but you'd be perceived as someone cutting corners, compared to an idiot who brags they worked past midnight doing the same shit.
Why doesn't someone stop this corporate culture?
A Japanese guy should found a company that offers low hours and high pay for high quality work, and offer promotion based on performance instead of dicksucking ability.
